There is a heavyweight fight rumored for this summer, and it’s a large one. According to, former Strikeforce heavyweight winner Alistair Overeem is predicted to come back to the cage at UFC 164, which takes place August 31 at Bradley Center in Milwaukee, WI. And his rumored competition is none aside from heavyweight banger Travis Browne, though this struggle is still far from official. Should it materialize, however, expect this to be the co-main occasion for UFC 164 as it is unquestionably one of the greatest battles of the summertime. Overeem, who was pumped out by Antonio »Bigfoot » Silva at UFC 156, was set to return to action against Junior dos Santos in UFC 160 but had to pull out because of injuries, but healthy, he’ll look to get back into title contention by simply taking out the climbing Browne, that also has a recent reduction to Silva. This is a fairly even matchup but I do prefer Browne to win the fight, and I believe he can win it . But, Overeem has all the hype and public support behind him and, even though he dropped to »Bigfoot, » I still expect him to start as the favorite in this struggle, perhaps in the -200 range, with the comeback on Browne being +150. And if that’s the case, then I will certainly be recommending a play on Browne, who’s coming off a KO win over veteran Gabriel Gonzaga. Another bet to target with this battle will be that it doesn’t go to decision, as either man has the capacity to knock one another out, so definitely consider making a play on this prop if it is under -300 come fight night. Lauzon vs. Johnson Booked For UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 The UFC today booked a lightweight bout between Massachusetts native Joe Lauzon and Michael Johnson for the upcoming UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 card, which takes place August 17 in Boston, MA. The fight will likely be a preliminary card bout. This is an excellent fight between two of the more exciting fighters in the UFC lightweight branch so kudos to UFC matchmaker Joe Silva for booking it. For Lauzon, it’s an opportunity to redeem himself after losing to Jim Miller in a war in UFC 155, while Johnson wants to bounce back big time after enduring back-to-back defeats to Myles Jury and Reza Madadi. This is a competitive struggle if it stays standing but when it hits the ground then Lauzon, who is a BJJ ace, will have a massive edge over Johnson, who has a very poor ground game. As such, I anticipate Lauzon to start at about -230 or with the opening comeback on Johnson being around +170, but things could easily change if the public decides they like Johnson to win. Personally, I think this is a very good matchup for Lauzon therefore I’d call him to win and that I definitely will be targeting him for a bet this summer, as well as targeting the Lauzon via entry prop.
